Design Wall Monday

Last Friday, I went to a class with a very friendly group that meets in Monroe, Wisconsin.  We meet a couple of times a year to do a fun and easy quilt project.  We always eat brown bag lunches and have show and tell.


This time the project was "Chain of Brights."  I finished piecing the nine inch blocks Saturday afternoon.


I used a piece of rainbow-dyed fabric from last summer's dyeing projects for most of the bright patches and a fun print with purple whales and other silly-looking sea-life for the background.  I think I'm going to use the rainbow-dye for the binding.  This quilt is for a certain new baby born this summer.

That is so much fun to look at. The baby, and the parents, will be so happy with it.

Lovely quilt. So happy looking for a new baby. Your dye job is really nice; good deep color.

What a really cool quilt and great for a baby. And I really like both the pattern and your dyed fabric.

Don't you just love it when a one of a kind piece of fabric you have created works so well in a quilt!
Excellent!!!

Karen,
I love that rainbow piece you dyed! I think you've inspired me to do some mess-making this weekend. Thanks!
